Rod Thomas leaps another grand jete towards total world domination.
The Welsh mastermind behind electro-pop outfit Bright Light Bright Light once again teams up with Sir Elton John for “Running Back To You,” the bouncy new single from his 2015 album Choreography. (The artists have collaborated before, most recently on last year’s excellent “All In The Name” single.)
While “Running Back To You” initially bears the trappings of a torchy power ballad, it quickly erupts into an exuberant toe-tapper, and the video spares absolutely no expense on shimmying backup dancers and sparklers. Subtly would be a wasted opportunity, anyway.
